  • The Burning of the White House: James and Dolley Madison and the War of 1812

    It's unimaginable today, even for a generation that saw the Twin Towers fall and the Pentagon attacked. It's unimaginable because in 1814 enemies didn't fly overhead, they marched through the streets; and for 26 hours in August, the British enemy marched through Washington, D.C. and set fire to government buildings, including the U.S. Capitol and the White House. Relying on first-hand accounts, historian Jane Hampton Cook weaves together several different narratives to create a vivid, multidimensional account of the burning of Washington, including the escalation that led to it and the immediate aftermath. From James and Dolley Madison to the...

  • Maryland Regulars in the War of 1812

    The purpose of this book is to identify Maryland residents who served in the U.S. Army during the War of 1812 and not to create a detailed service record for each individual man. There are mistakes! Due to misspelling of surnames, missing records, and other factors, some men are missing, some men are listed twice, and some men are not properly identified. Overall, this book should be used to identify soldiers and to point out what records are available for each individual. It is entirely safe to say that Marylanders served in nearly every U.S. Army regiment during the war and that they also fought in every major battle in both the United Stat...

  • Naval War of 1812-1815: Foundation of America's Maritime Might

    This is the exciting story about how the young American Republic established the United States Navy, Marine Corps and Revenue Cutter Service (the predecessor to the Coast Guard), designed and built the most powerful class of frigate in the world, trained its seamen in gunnery and naval warfare and gained battle experience in the Quasi-War with France in 1798-1800 and the Barbary War (“Shores of Tripoli”) in 1801-1805. The United States was a neutral nation in a world where European powers were locked in a death struggle.

    Three-Volume Boxed SetTranslated by Louise and Aylmer MaudeWar and Peace broadly focuses on Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 and follows three of the most well-known characters in literature: Pierre Bezukhov, the illegitimate son of a count who is fighting for his inheritance and yearning for spiritual fulfillment; Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, who leaves his family behind to fight in the war against Napoleon; and Natasha Rostov, the beautiful young daughter of a nobleman who intrigues both men.

  • Amateurs, To Arms!: A Military History Of The War Of 1812 (Major Battles and Campaigns)

    "A gripping narrative of an unpopular and badly fought war--a century and a half before Vietnam--that will shock the uninformed reader."--Military HistoryBegun in ignorance of the military reality, the War of 1812 was fought catch-as-catch-can with raw troops, incompetent officers, and appallingly inadequate logistics. The odds against the American fighting forces-woefully unrealistic preparations and expectations, British military might, a feckless Congress and administration, the treason of many citizens who fed and praised the enemy-were overwhelming. American soil was invaded along three frontiers, the national capital was occupied and bu...

  • The War of 1812 in Wisconsin: The Battle for Prairie du Chien

    In The War of 1812 in Wisconsin, author Mary Elise Antoine brings a little-known corner of Wisconsin’s history to life. Prairie du Chien, located just above mouth of the Wisconsin River, was the key to trade on the upper Mississippi. Whoever controlled the prairie commanded the immense territory inhabited by thousands of American Indians—and the fur they traded. When war broke out between the United States and Great Britain in 1812, British and Americans fought to maintain the ever-shifting alliance of the tribes.This is the story of the battle for the control of Prairie du Chien and the western country, which began many years before the ...

  • Preparing for War: The Emergence of the Modern U.S. Army, 1815-1917

    The U.S. Army has always regarded preparing for war as its peacetime role, but how it fulfilled that duty has changed dramatically over time. J. P. Clark traces the evolution of the Army between the War of 1812 and World War I, showing how differing personal experiences of war and peace among successive generations of professional soldiers left their mark upon the Army and its ways.Nineteenth-century officers believed that generalship and battlefield command were more a matter of innate ability than anything institutions could teach. They saw no benefit in conceptual preparation beyond mastering technical skills like engineering and gunnery. ...

  • Over Here: The First World War and American Society

    The Great War of 1914-1918 confronted the United States with one of the most wrenching crises in the nation's history.

Over Here is the single-most comprehensive discussion of the impact of World War I on American society. This 25th anniversary edition includes a new afterword from Pulitzer Prize-winning author David M. Kennedy, that explains his reasons for writing the original edition as well as his opinions on the legacy of Wilsonian idealism, most recently reflected in President George W. Bush's national security st...
